    6. Isabella R

      Am I the only one who thinks that he looks a little like Ian Somerhalder?

    7. Bavila

      I could hardly tell the difference and I expected lighter looking hair. I did like this technique!

    8. EVMRC

      does anyone know if this would work if your hair is dyed super dark?

    9. Ashley Miller

      Should I dye my hair brown first and then do this on top if I have greys I want to cover???

      1. Dia VM

        Literally what i am wondering too! Pesky grays!

    10. And then the Infires Nation attacked my hearteu

      This is what I wanted. Instead, my hairdresser teased my hair, bleached it randomly, not saturated at the bottom. I am streaked. My hair is streaky. Not very happy.

    11. WoolyDelav S.

      Ohhhhh, What's happened with the front very light parts???? Ha Braddy ? But anyway I love you and your funny video!!!

    12. Mina Lee

    13. ANNIE OOH

    14. Sandie Beauty

      I like the balayage he did to his hair , it is so much better, agree?

    15. Abi Jara

      My hair is very dark and I did it. Everything turned out good, except that my hair is orange in some parts now. Any help??

    16. Chanda Massey

      I would loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee to see a video on toning balayage with Redken Shades EQ including root smudges with different gloss on the ends :)

    17. Phinie

      And how should be part it if I usually part differently?

    18. Twisha Angral

      An angel on earth you r ❤️

    19. Cerah Bailey

    22. Mimi Ramone

      Your hair training videos are everything. Relatively new subscriber & love your style. Thanks so much, especially during Covid I won’t be seeing a professional hairdresser here in Seattle (lately haven’t been 100% with their work). Until I’m back to New York to my homegirl’s salon, it’s all me. You’re Teaching me everything I did wrong and what to do right next time LOL Thank you!!!

    23. Hoodxo Calum

      So this isn't an ombre? Lol

    24. Eshita Prins

      Ok but what kind of toner did he/can i use for this colour hair?

    25. Jennifer Petersen

      I'm gonna have to try this because money's gonna be tiiiiight for the next 3 years.

    26. Alex S

      gonna be doing this to my sisters hair later today 😬 wish me luck!!

    27. Diana Ortinez

      Thank you for your videos. I enjoy watching all of them!!!

    28. Bonnie Mcmurray

      The ends look really green and muddy tbh, I would maybe put some copper in there to neutralize that and make it look more like the inspo. picture.

    29. Lilyanna Marie

      Hey Beutiful the only one who tells me that.

    30. Ssandra

      I dont have straight hair and my hair is so frizzy but still watching his video

    31. rutuja K

      I love him saying...Hi Beautiful...awww so cute

    32. Sarah Lloyd

      Why is no one talking about how he dyed his hair 🥰🥰

    33. Andi Flamenco

      Where do you get your gloves from?? I’m a barber in need of colored gloves cause black is boring

    34. Pheebs

      I can't believe some of yall can't see the difference lol

    35. Heidi Gonzalez Sepulveda

      I did mine, first timer, and I LOVE IT! Thank you Brad. 💕💕👏👏

    36. Amalhoa Carrasco

      Please!!! Do this for a curly girl who needs a retouch since my highlights are from almost 18 months ago :'(

    37. Randi 00

      How do you get the vaves?

    38. Upasana Deka

      I followed this and just did the lower part of my hair and I'm very happy with how it turned out 🥺 thengsss Brad 🥺

    39. Jackelin Haro acosta

      I honestly learned so much from this video. Everything that I questioned before and couldn't find is here! Yayyy! 😆 since my hubby does my balayage, we had some incidents lol what saved my hair was the hair highlighting cap to give my balayage that full highlight look. But it also depends if you want those shadows, then I might not recommend it.

    40. Robin Reynolds

      yo his hair is blonde again lol

    41. Amanda Rose

      I just got a balayage and the manikin looks way better than me 🤣😂🤣

    42. Kelsey Curtis

      Oh man, I'm doing this to my daughter today! 😬😬😬😬 Eeeek! Hey, if I mess up... I'll just dye it one color lol 🤣🤣

    43. Clau a

      Balayage is so hard to do, I have to go to the salon for a color correction. Better to leave that to the professionals. It is true what he says you will spend more money trying to do it your self. Never again

    44. Jennifer Coffey

      Have you done a video like this but with a lighter blonde result?

    45. Heart 1

      Support me plz

    46. Heart 1

    47. mili c

      can i do first balayage on long hair and then trim it or is gonna be a hot mess?

    48. J LO

      I’m doing this tonight.......or maybe tomorrow. I’m for sure doing it!

    49. Avy Skylla

      I should've watched this first before dying my hair. Lol 🤣

    50. Crystal V

      I’ve never done balayage on myself. But I did highlights on myself years ago. And he’s right wash it out in sections to make sure it develops evenly.

    51. Tess Martin

      I love your teaching.

    52. Shannan Dezarae Peralta

      I learned more about my hair during the 17 minutes of this video than I've known my whole 22 years of life 😂

    53. Nicole Belz-Johnson

      I’ve had 3 treatments I love it but I have a few to go to get to my desired blonde. 💕

    54. Ambar Keen

      So what if I want that hair color but am starting with a level 8/9 grown out balayage base? What can I do to get it to that chocolate balayage?

    55. Brissa1x

      I’m planning to do this to myself using box lightener. I used lightener before dw. I just don’t trust myself with bleach 🤷🏻‍♀️

    56. miilenn _g

      Very helpful !! 😁😁

    57. Yildis Castillo

      What kind of bleach did he use? So that the hair in between didn’t get bleached?

    58. Lily Parker

      I really wish I watched this video yesterday! I’m doing the exact same look on my manikin, and I’m not too happy with the highlights because I used the pinwheel method 😭

    59. Ishita Singh

      I m going to get this done this Sunday...doing loads of research beforehand to avoid mess in my hair..lmao...

    60. Michelle Beachlover

      I always hi-light my hair myself, and color my roots. I love using Shades EQ toner as well. If a few pieces get to light, boom the Shades EQ takes care of it.

    61. Mrs Reghan

      And what do you do if you have bangs? 😬 like Zooey Dachanel

    62. Lauren Jade

    71. chel chel

    72. faseela pp


    73. Manila S Samek

    74. Wendy x

      So balayage is just bleaching the hair ?

    75. Amy Isham

      OMG I love your beige toned hair! What is this colour called!? It blends so nicely with your natural and your eyebrows XO

    76. Emily H

      Sooooo..... what if I were to try this on my blond hair with pink? I am curious....

    77. loonaplum

      I’m gonna need a tutorial for your hair color that’s my goal for my hair 👀👀

    78. Herleen Braich

      How do we do this on ourselves ?? Like the back sections ?

    79. huh

      Brad Mondo! okok so please if you have time to respond, what if i wanted curtain bangs too, do i dye it lighter on the bangs??

    80. Stephanie G

      I wish my last stylist watched this. I had to just cover it up with darker die because I was about to go back to a locked down base 😭😭 now I’m stuck on a navy base with no access to get real balayage.

    81. Mtn Tognettis

      Brad, if I wanted to try this but wanted my hair to be a merlot wine color with dark roots, would I put the wine color all over the lightened areas or the whole head? I can't seem to find this particular step anywhere

    82. bakhtawar shah

      Hey Brad, can i apply blue color on Loreal Paris excellence creme natural blonde?

    83. candychampa

      I just tried this technique and my results were AMAZING!!! I used 20vol though, just in case I took too long on some sections and couldn't wash it out in time. Thanks so much for posting this and doing you! xo

    84. Eirwen Alastrine

      Such a good video! I followed this on my own hair and it came out amazing! (Although a little orange 🍊😂)

      I WANT BRAD TO DO MY HAIR SO MUCH I had my hair died blonde in June 2020 for my birthday and it was ash and greyey for the first couple of days until I washed it. first time I washed it it went brassy and yellowed brad please help me Im think of going back dark brown and doing a bayalge on dark hair. my blonde has grown out a bit but I don't want to damage it even more bye bleaching it because im letting my natural brown hair grow back if I can't like my blonde hair while its brassy. also by dark balyage I mean like the photos he showed
